WALTHAM - The Portland Trail Blazers can rest easy for a few days.
The Celtics today announced that Darius Miles has been put on waivers. The roster now stands at 15.
Though he looked impressive in workouts, Miles apparently did not convince the brain trust that he will be a rotation guy this season. His 10-game suspension to start the season probably did not help.
"Darius was a model citizen during his time here in Boston," said Danny Ainge in a statement. "He showed he still has a lot of basketball left in him."
If he wasn't going to make the team, it is the right thing to do to cut him a little early so he has a chance to catch on elsewhere. And I think he will sign somewhere. There just wasn't room on this roster.
